Corporate Overview

Kelab Golf Sarawak (Sarawak Golf Club) is located approximately 10 km from the centre of Kuching City . To club members, the golfing fraternity and frequent visitors, the club is more affectionately known as "KGS" .

The main feature of KGS is its 36-holes golf course, the only one in the Land of the Hornbills. The majestic clubhouse separates the two golfing locations. To the south is the Matang/Santubong 18; and to the north is the Siol/Demak 18. The Matang/Santubong course is named after Sarawak 's well known geographical landmarks, the two famous mountain ranges - Santubong and Matang. The mountains themselves are clearly visible from the golf course, approximately 25 km from the clubhouse. The newly upgraded championship course is 6394 meters long, par 72, designed to test a player's ball-striking accuracy and course management skills. It comes with a combination of undulating Paspalum fairways and strategically positioned hazards to provide a great challenge to both the high handicappers and scratch players alike. The Siol/Demak 18 is located in the northern side of the clubhouse. It is also a par-72 championship course, but is slightly shorter in length - 6224 meters. Seasoned players and single handicappers tend to regard it as a less difficult course. Nevertheless, its narrow fairways and numerous water hazards at every bend fringing the fairways down the stretch require precision ball striking skills and accurate placement game. Wayward shots off the tee would invariably result in the balls rolling or diving direct into the many ponds guarding the par-3 holes, as exemplified by hole-6 at Siol 9.

In addition to golf complete with KGS driving range even for night time training, a wide range of other sporting and recreational facilities is also available at KGS. For example, the club has an eight-lane Olympic size swimming pool. Badminton and squash courts are located at the indoor badminton hall, and the tennis complex adjacent to the badminton and squash hall provides four tennis courts with lighting facilities.

The clubhouse with its highly unusual architecture bears a resemblance of an outstanding pyramid from the ancient land of the Pharaoh. There is nothing ancient about what one can find within this unique building though. For scholarly pursuit one can retreat to the club library which is well stocked with up-to-date reading materials that could quench one's thirst for reading.

The club gymnasium is fully supplied with every conceivable tool and equipment to tone the body and firm up the muscles. There is also a snookerium for those good at billiard and snooker. The F&B outlets provide a wide range of Chinese, Western, Japanese and Thai cuisines. While enjoying the food at the Pavilion and the Golfer's Terrace, one could have a breathtaking view of the finishing holes at Matang and Santubong nines where one often bears witness to the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.
